'Happy Days' Scott Baio's Wife Diagnosed With Brain Tumor

By    |   Friday, 19 June 2015 09:31 AM

Actor Scott Baio revealed Tuesday that his wife Renee has been diagnosed with a brain tumor.

"Renee has been down some rough roads in her life, yet each time with her strong faith in God, she comes through a better and stronger person. During this time we ask for your prayers and support," Baio, 54, wrote in a Facebook post.


"My wife is my rock. She refuses to even shed one tear, nor will she question God's will," he added.

The "Happy Days" actor married Renee more than seven years ago, and they have a 7-year-old daughter together, Bailey DeLuca. Shortly after her birth in 2007, Bailey was treated for rare disorder known as glutaric acidemia type 1, which in turn prompted her parents to found the Bailey Baio Angel Foundation, a non-profit for special needs children affected by metabolic disorders, E! Online reported

In regard to Renee's meningioma brain tumor, Baio explained that he is hopeful for a positive outcome.

"Although 90 percent of these type of tumors are benign they can cause serious problems depending on the size of the tumor and the location. We are waiting to learn the exact location to see if its [sic] operable," he wrote.

"Renee, Bailey and I will get through this and along the way maybe help educate others to get checked out (MRI with contrast) as 6500 people each year, mostly women get these tumors."

In the days following his Facebook announcement, Baio and his wife took to Twitter to thank fans for their outpouring of support.
